African Ceramics: A Different Perspective

Edited by Angelika Nollert. Text by Kim Bagley, Marla Berns, Boureima Diamitani, Stefan Eisenhofer, Caroline Fuchs, Oliver Gosselain, Karin Guggeis, Alexander Livingstone-Smith, Angelika Nollert, Magdalene Odundo, Sylvester Ogbechie, Elizabeth Perrill, Kerstin Pinther, Barbara Plankensteiner, Nii Quarcoopome, Josef Strasser, Barbara Thompson, Nanashaitu Aduke Umoru-Oke, Moia Vincentelli, Julien Volpers.

A fresh look at ceramic production in Africa, examining form, decor and materiality

This extensive catalogue presents 250 African ceramic objects from the collection of HRH Franz, Duke of Bavaria, widely considered to be one of the most internationally significant collections of African ceramics. Featured here are objects dating from the 19th to the 21st century, across the wealth of forms and functions of African ceramics, although primarily focused on ceramic items crafted using a hand-building technique, forgoing the use of a potter’s wheel. Each object is accompanied by insights and analyses from international experts.

The “different perspective” alluded to in the title is first and foremost an artistic point of view. This volume establishes a different, design-focused viewpoint. Instead of a presentation organized by region, as is customary in ethnographic museums and contexts, this book offers a design-historical examination of the vessels and figures.
